Item of the Week 12/09/14

Look SB Skirt

£39.99- LOOK Collection for Simply Be


ZZZZ at Asda

Yesterday Asda launched its new plus sized range which goes up to a size 32 and I have to say I’m very……. underwhelmed.

….. that make the George Plus range appear doubly uninspiring by contrast. Of course, I  wouldn’t expect high fashion from a supermarket line like I would from Asos or Evans, but I would expect a little bit more effort. Just a little bit. George Plus, you really do disappoint.

Any thoughts from you dear readers?

OH- And to add insult to injury- the range is only available online. But of course, you expected that didn’t you?

Once You Pop You Can’t Stop

Who was your favourite cartoon character as a child? Mine was Charlie Brown and I so wanted to live in his world with Linus, Lucy, Schroeder and Peanuts. Now that I’ve discovered these dramatic comic strip bags by Pop Up Bags, I can live out my cartoon dreams in glorious technicolour with a solid bold outline. I no longer pine for Chuck but I can certainly play the part of his cartoon girlfriend with one of these scene stealers.

The Pop Up Bags website doesn’t give any indication of how long the company has been trading or give any hints about what their next range may be, but I’m certainly following them on every social media platform available because I. MUST. SEE. MORE.

Anna is Ready

NooooooOOooooOOoooooooooo!!!! I’m having too good a summer to be thinking about autumn winter fashion. NOT NOW PLEASE. The sun is blazing, the shades are on, the sandals are in daily use- I’M NOT READY.

Anna is though. Anna is ready and raring to go with the White collection launching this week. Luxurious fabrics, sultry looks and beautiful prints- everything you expect from an Anna Scholz collection plus a new print that incorporates Anna’s own fingerprint. Now that’s what you call a signature feature. See below for preview images from the campaign- if you can stand it in this weather.

Waiter, there are flies on my cake

I can make these in all sizes- just message me at fatgirlclothes at yahoo dot com for info or open an Etsy convo. PS- Skirt can be made to any length.

My First Time

WHITEDRESS1

Are you getting married? Is that your baptismal dress? Both comments I’ve heard today. No, and no.

I’ve never worn a white dress. Apart from white vests and tees, I don’t even have any white clothes*. White is just not a colour that I wear and technically speaking its not even a colour at all, really. It’s a well known fact that I love brights so when people see me in white I understand the propensity to think there must be a logical reason behind it. I bought this in  Monsoon last summer but have never worn it. It was the embroidered spots that caught my eye, the Little House On The Prairie styling that reeled me in, and the sale price that sealed the deal. The look with the natural tan accessories and soft hairstyle is somewhat puritanical, and I feel like I should be skipping barefoot through a meadow, but in a strange way I feel kind of… liberated from colour. Is this a normal reaction to wearing all white? There was a guy at my church who only ever wore white clothing. I used to think he was a little odd. I know his motivation was more spiritual than sartorial, but I’m beginning to see the appeal. Am I losing my mind? Someone please help before I lose it completely and start bleaching all my clothes.

If you want to try out the washing-powder-white look I’ve done some searching for the best white dresses I could find. Just prepare yourself for the questions.
